I've been staring at a beautiful jacket on Piperlime for the longest time, but at over a hundred dollars, it wasn't a coat I could justify buying. Only super warm and thick winter coats are worth that investment, so I just kept staring, thinking it might be a good Christmas present. Then yesterday at the grocery store I saw this. It was almost a exact replica of the coat I've been
lusting er, drooling over. It was well made and best of all, it was on 50% off. Plus a 25% coupon. Plus a savings certificate Plus 20% discount. Yes, this coat was mine for under 20 dollars.
Thank you mass retailer grocery store, I'm not feeling smug at all right over the great savings I got on this coat. Even Evan thought it was a super cool coat and that it was a great deal.
So my smugness aside, I re-realized something today. That no matter how you spin it, taking pictures of your outfit is pretty silly. This illustrates that point:
The cropped image looks pretty normal and not too ridiculous, until you see the full photo....
Yup, there I am, being all stupid and serious and then there's Izzy in the background, being adorable and taking a big gulp of juice. (I'd like to claim credit for her cute outfit but nope, that was all her. It's the first day this week she hasn't picked out the princess dress, pirate hat and cape to wear. Girl's got style.)
